Creamed Pearl Onions with Gruyere and Parmesan | Food Photography & Styling Challenge | Cast-Iron Cooking

Hello all and almost Happy New Year!!  Happy to get my act together to participate in this month’s food photography and styling challenge with The Inspired Plate.  Not to mention I also made Christmas dinner #3 tonight for my ex and Alex so that we could celebrate our first Christmas post-divorce with dignity and family unity… after all the cooking all day and shooting….I then set out to make artichokes and lobster tails.  Okay, so PHEW.

This month’s challenge was cooking with cast-iron.  I have some really cool pieces that I can’t take a picture of now…to worn out lol…but unique and fairly old.  And….it was one of those rare, dreary, rainy days here in Florida so I actually had to use my Lowel EGO lights and push the dining table up to the wall and then hop up, avoiding the big chandelier.  Funny….my son captured a pic of me doing my job.  🙂



And a close-up of this awesome goodness….

Kathy - I bet you can make any recipe look delicious!. Love looking at photos of the recipe before I try it

Sabrina - This looks amazing Stacey! I can’t believe you got such nice light using a setup – it looks so much like daylight 🙂 The styling is impeccable, as usual!

Tammy Bilodeau - WOW! Stacey I love this post and that last image is so beautiful. I love all the different textures and contrast in colours, and the crispy golden topped cheese. I am going to have to add this to my regular repitoire. Thanks for sharing and great job 🙂

Allison Jacobs - I always love seeing pullback shots, but this is the best one yet! Your dish looks great & some other day, I would love to see your other pans too! I wanted a more antique look for mine but it was a brand new skillet! 🙂

Jennifer Olson - Yum!!! Those look amazing Stacey! I love the golden carmelizey color you got in the onions. And well done on the artificial lighting, something I want to work on more in the coming year! Love your work, my friend!!
